Job Description

At Buildkite we build tools to help the best software teams stay happy and productive. We’ve rethought how CI/CD should work and have built a platform that is fast, reliable, secure, and is able to scale to the needs of the most demanding high-growth tech companies including Shopify, Pinterest, Wayfair, Cruise, PagerDuty, CultureAmp, and Canva.

Buildkite is a differently shaped company that values work-life balance and supports staff to work the ways that make sense for them. From the beginning, our goal has been to build a company that was profitable, grew sustainably, and had a strong, people-centered culture. We’re currently a distributed team of 39 humans working remotely from Seattle, Vancouver, Perth, Sydney, Hobart, Adelaide, Kyoto, Oakland (US), Long Beach, Wellington, Berlin, London, Kiev, Cordoba (Argentina), and Melbourne.

  • Keep track of account usage; work on top-ups (expansion) and renewal of enterprise annual plans including negotiating terms and working through legal agreements
  • Measure and report on MRR expansion, contraction, and churn.
